http://www.ssdc.army.mil/ssdc/acqref2.html
The U.S. Army Space and Strategic Defense Command (SSDC)
in Huntsville, Ala., held its Acquisition Reform Day 2 on March
19, 1997. Brig. Gen. Robert E. Armbruster, deputy commander,
presented a very motivational speech on the forces of change (in
the acquisition world), applying this change skillfully, using the
teaming concept to implement innovations, and - above all -
remaining good stewards of the government’s money.
